  1. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    Hello everyone! This season I will have to switch from Mecosta to Clare County (wife has a cabin there), and I have absolutely no idea where to hunt! I don’t know anyone so it will have to be public land. Any suggestions or ideas would be very much appreciated!

    Unfortunately the city i live in is a "No Hunting Zone"... my backyard is always packed with Doe, fawn, and a few BIG BUCKS. Well this morning this guy decided to show his face, and i hurried and got a few pics before he wandered off. I haven't ever attempted to take any of the deer due to the...

    One of my stands has some great bucks on camera, all morning photos, between 8 -9am. At this spot I don't have photos of these bucks during evening hours. Should I still focus on this stand for evening hunts, or scout another stand for evenings? Thanks in advanced for any opinions, and happy...

  9. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    Last year my dad and I set up a deer camp in the Manistee national forest near Reed City. This was our first year exclusively hunting state or federal ground. We had a great time, but the hunting pressure was very high and the buck to doe ratio seemed like 1 to 20 (I think that's a Michigan...

    Good morning everyone, I'm just getting back into the hunt after being off for they last 12 years. I find that I'm really struggling to slap my tag on a deer.

  12. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    Unfortunately I am already starting to plan next years season with the hopes of putting in early work to give myself better opportunities in the stand. I hunted the Manistee national forest this year. It is relatively a short drive (from Grand Rapids) but the mature buck sign was limited. I...
  13. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    In this hunt we were able to fire not 1 but 2 arrows at one of the biggest buck's we have on the farm. We hunted the first cold front of the season last year, it was a slushy rain/snow mix. This brute came out of the corn and presented a shot...twice! Does this ever happen?? Of course not, but...

  16. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    So I have always been a fan of sitting all day once the rut hits, but sometimes have a hard time getting myself to do it. I often times find myself making excuses to head home for the midday hours of hunting. I'll admit, I just have a hard time sitting past 4 or 5 hours. Even when I know I...

    I an a senior in High School who just started hunting Island lake. I have been over there 6 times and have not seen a deer. There are signs of deer everywhere scrapes, rubs, and tracks.

  18. Michigan Whitetail Deer Hunting
    Hey gang! I know there's going to be a thousand different opinions on this topic but figured I'd open up this can of worms anyway! What grunt calls, rattling antlers, scents (attractants/scent-blockers/estrous) does everyone use? Play the wind and sneak in real quiet - but this stuff has to...

    Not a ton of food in this area - lots of nibbling on brows and foraging the bushes. Hoping these bucks grow to at least meet our APRs and the does put on more weight before fall. Plenty of time! One bachelor group of 3. I think these fellas are at least 2-3 years old. Couple of the does...
